If we loved Cayman...

Jump to last reply

Our family of four, including two twenty-somethings, are planning to spend Christmas in the Caribbean. Current affordable airfare is to Turks and Caicos, St. Thomas and St. Martin.

We loved our last family vacation to Grand Cayman: we were fortunate to find affordable on Seven Mile Beach in the private condo section part of town via Airbnb; yet, the busier areas, which the youngsters enjoyed, were not too far away and public transit was decent.

Now, looking at Turks and Caicos, lodging seems crazy expensive on every island. We don't really like all-inclusive resorts, but I am afraid that if we stay on another island (North or Middle), the kids will get bored. Is this accurate or are there things to do on these less populated islands?

St. Thomas I don't know much about...St. Martin might be a better alternative because lodging is less expensive and there are lots of different areas of the island that are fairly readily accessible. However, I have been there before (though a very long time ago) and was hoping for somewhere new.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your consideration.
